Capcom is working on a fix for Resident Evil Village’s PC woes.
Recently, it emerged that the cracked version of the survival horror game featured better performance, and this improvement was backed up by a report from Eurogamer’s Digital Foundry. Now, Capcom has told Eurogamer that a PC performance patch is being worked on and “should be available soon”, with details to be released “shortly”.
The person who cracked the game had claimed that Capcom’s anti-tamper V3 and Denuvo V11 were the source of the issues. Denuvo denied that its DRM was responsible in a statement to PC Gamer, which said “We have run multiple tests on multiple machines and there is no difference in game experience on the legitimate version protected with Denuvo Anti-Tamper, versus the unprotected version without Denuvo Anti-Tamper. We cannot comment specifically on the Capcom implementations as they are unrelated to Denuvo's solution."
While we don’t know for sure if the DRM really is the cause, it’s good to see Capcom working on a fix for Resident Evil Village, although it’s also a shame that it took the emergence of a better-performing cracked version to get us to this point. #capcom #residentevilvillage
